“The best B&B you will ever experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

All previous reviews confirmed, you will not find a better b&b anywhere, a beautiful place...in a beautiful place!
Marilyn & David are the perfect hosts, David's fell walking advice comes from pure experience and Marilyns drop scones are as described in the other reviews......mouth watering...the best way to start a day...and that bacon...and those cumberland sausages...we could go on.
Whatever your reason for visiting the Lake District...do yourself a favour and book into Bybeck b&b.

Room Tip: Both rooms perfect!

This was our second visit to bybeck, and it was like visiting friends & family. The welcome from Marilyn and David was as ever, extremely warm and sincere. It really is a home from home, with cleaniness second to none. The breakfasts too (not forgetting the all important Drop-scones!!) are top drawer, and set you up for a day on the fells, or meandering in the valley bottoms.
Nothing is too much trouble at the Bybeck, and David & Marilyn are a fountain of knowledge from walks to recommended places to eat & visit. A stay at the Bybeck makes you feel apart of the lake district, and not just a tourist.
Both Bybeck B&B and Grange itself are rare gems, once discovered, you'll be back to sample its charms time and time again.
Thanks again for a great stay!
Diane & Jon

Great company, food, cleanliness. lovely location the other reviewers say it all. DON'T try the drop scones and dry cured bacon - it will change your life!
Professionalism yet effortless hosting that many more luxurious locations can only aspire to.

We loved our stay at Bybeck. David and Marilyn are supper friendly hosts. We love chatting with them over breakfast. David is very knowledgeable with all the walks around Lake district. He pointed us to the way up Scafell Pike that avoided the most hiker! We had a great time. He also pointed to a hike across the road that gives a perfect view of Grange from above. we wouldn't have ever find it on our own.

The B&B location is perfect! Grange is tranquil unlike some of the other big popular tourist towns within Lake district. It is also short drive to many popular hikes around. drive to start the hike for Scafell is only 5min down the road. we had a room toward the front of the house with a great view. room and bathroom are comfortable and well stocked with coffee and tea. The B&B is also surrounded by a beautiful garden.

Moving on to those drop scones for breakfast!!! they are awesome. We were even given the extras to take on our climb up Scafell, made for wonderful lunch. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit Lake district.

Our family had the good fortune to stay 3 nights at Bybeck Bed and Breakfast during our first visit to Keswick and the gorgeous Lake District. The rave reviews don't say enough! We felt like we were visiting family (or better!) with the incredible care and attention showered upon us by David and Marilyn. They had room for our family of 5, though they don't always cater to children. Marilyn was like a favorite Auntie, baking the kids a chocolate cake and slipping them the occasional goody... David was our knowledgeable hiking guide and nature coach, supplying us with snacks, maps, plenty of information about the fells and even some rain gear. David and Marilyn are engaging, warm and generous. The rooms are clean, fresh, comfortable, inviting. The Lake District was a highlight during our UK trip; magical and stunning... superlatives all fall short. We highly recommend staying at Bybeck B & B if you appreciate friendly, engaging hosts and would love an outstanding breakfast in a truly beautiful little pocket of the world.

Perfectly located in Borrowdale, well placed for walks up Scafell Pike and Bowfell or Great Gabel, or local fells or river or lakeside walks. The owners made me feel very much at home and went out of their way to ensure I made the most of my short stay. Excellent advice on routes, and superb breakfast and added baking treats!

Beautiful setting, spotlessly clean, modern, comfortable wonderful breakfasts. Our hosts welcomed us into their home and were so kind and helpful and knowledgeable - we could not have asked for a nicer place to stay, Plenty of space to park the car safely and convenient for gentle walks or for climbing - even I was pursuaded to take a walk up Catbells and made it to the top, in spite of my fear of heights! We didn't make it up the 'Dolly Mountain' (Castle Crag) though but we did spot a Red Squirrel in the trees on the edge of the village, We hope to return again soon - Thank you David and Marilyn for all your care and attention - was noticed and appreciated and especially your drop scones, locally sourced bacon and sausages in the mornings. A perfect couple of days could not have been nicer. Thank you again.
